    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time

    Pros

    You get a chance to work with some of the biggest companies in the world on some of their hardest problems. It is intense and challenging, and you will be pushed to your limits. But you learn a lot and build a good toolkit that will help you no matter what you end up doing afterwards. Great training and good coaching to learn to help make change happen in large organizations. You will work with a bunch of really smart people who have a lot of fun together. The culture is fantastic and teams are very collaborative and supportive in general. There are good opportunities to work internationally if you want to do so.

    Cons

    The hours can be long and the bar for performance goes up every 6 months. You can end up traveling a lot. Partners can be a little too focused on commercial development rather than people development.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview

    The interview was friendly and consisted of some personal (leadership, experience, etc.) questions and cases. The cases were interesting and novel, and the interviewers seemed to really want to get to know me. They were also open about their experiences at the firm.
